l'OGCN veut faire la différence avant le retour

l’OGCN veut faire la différence avant le retour


The first warning is for a Nice

Ilie throws herself and is late. He crushes an opponent’s ankle and receives a logical yellow.

Maccabi seem more enterprising than in the first half

But the first minutes had already been the best for the Israeli club.

A change on the Israeli side

Davidzada replaces Hozez in the left lane.

Here we go again !

Nice have 45 minutes to take the lead before the second leg.

0-0 at the break between Maccabi Tel-Aviv and OGC Nice!

We can regret that the Niçois, who had the best chances, are not in front of the scoreboard. But we can also be confident for the future if the Aiglons continue like this.

Peretz is the man of this first period

The Israeli goalkeeper kicks out a shot from Delort from a tight angle. Not his most complicated save, but he continues to repel Nice’s attempts.


Thuram had done well to break through, but his last pass found no partner. He might have tried to strike, even if the angle was tight.


It took a set piece. A first free kick is cleared in panic. In the aftermath, the ball returns to the surface with a returning center. There are always people in front of goal and Schmeichel cannot intervene. No one touches the ball, which ends up just wide of the post. Phew!

Nice is still relatively safe

The Aiglons have not yet found the fault, but they leave very few chances to Maccabi Tel-Aviv. Striker Zahavi comes down more and more often to touch the ball.


We will note the name of the young Israeli goalkeeper (22 years old) in a corner, because he is the man of the match for the moment. Ramsey’s turn to be found deep. His cross shot is strong, but Peretz pulls out a nice horizontal to push the ball away.

Schmeichel touches the ball

It’s been a long time, and his save after a too soft header from a corner wasn’t the most difficult of his career.

It’s time for a cool break

Hopefully she won’t cut the momentum from the match, as it’s clearly in OGCN’s favour. Les Aiglons had the best chances, hitting the post and forcing Peretz into a big save in particular.

Nice comeback from Nice

That’s the Favre touch, even if Lemina is caught when arming after a pass from Ilie.


You won’t regret them! Delort is well found in depth and tries his luck from a tight angle. It’s on the post and the ball comes back to Ilie, who has the goal wide open but is surprised and hits wide! It is not possible…


The Israeli international hopefuls was hesitant at the start of his outing from a corner, but made up for it well with a tonic tap on a well-slammed header from Thuram.

Nice is looking for the flaw

Ilie carries the ball a little too much in front of the box. He can finally shift Atal, who looks on his feet and whose vicious center is deflected for a corner.

It’s already the third round for Maccabi Tel-Aviv

The Israelis knocked out FK Zira (Azerbaijan) and Aris Salonika (Greece) earlier in the competition.

The first quarter of an hour is reassuring for Nice

The Aiglons continue to have the ball and to be in the opposing camp. Stengs approaches the box, but gives the ball away in the wrong tempo.

OGCN keeps the ball

The stadium inevitably whistles on this long possession, but it still helps to calm the atmosphere a little.

Another hot situation for the Gym

Delort, who had taken over a center from Bard slightly deflected with a header by a Nice player, was offside anyway and had seen his shot from close range repelled by Peretz. But it can give hope to the people of Nice.


Small number of the Romanian, who transplanted in the axis from the left, eliminates a defender at the entrance to the surface and sees his shot being finally pushed back by another Maccabi player.

The Maccabi starts by pressing high

Thuram, with the ball at his feet, cannot even make one of the breakthroughs of which he has the secret. He is forced to lie down, and lose the ball.

Let’s go !

Nice is 180 minutes from the group stage of the Europa League Conference, where it could be the only French club (pending possible transfers after the fall).

The players enter the pitch

Nice atmosphere at the stadium, with a tifo in kop and even on the side where the supporters form the striped colors of Maccabi (blue and yellow). The stadium is sold out.

250 Nice supporters are there

A nice parking lot made possible by the existence of a section of fans in Israel, who therefore came to encourage the Aiglons.

Why should Nice be wary of Zahavi?

Answer in video, and supporting stats.

A weighty context
